Not a good review.

Starts with a wrong claim that there was a $1,000 upcharge for the audio-system alone. Flat out wrong.

And the claim that the ST wouldn't be handling well is based on what? Driving a Platinum?

Apparently, you did not full understand the reviewers comments. Please review this video again.��

Go to 6:07 in the video for $1K B&O audio upgrade.

ST starts at around 14:30.

Huh?

Did he claim that the Audio-system alone was a $1,000 upcharge or not?

I think I understood that part pretty well....

"The base audio-system, I don't even know how much it is" - This is probably the dumbest comment I ever heard in a car-review.

"But this is a $1,000 option" - NO, the Audio-upgrade is not a $1,000 option, it is a part of a PACKAGE that costs $1,000 and also includes the bigger screen and the massaging seats. That leaves perhaps $200 for the speakers.

"You pay $1,000 more and you get a couple of speakers" - Repeating wrong information doesn't make it right. It's part of a package.

"And the Audio-system, spending $1,000..." - Sorry, but even mentioning it for the third time doesn't make it right.

Not what I was referring to.

They are making assumptions about the ST without driving one.

Check out what this guy says about the ST - and yes, he's actually behind the wheel which is VERY helpful if you want to judge a vehicle:

I don't have any issue at all if somebody makes a tough review but as soon as that reviewer is trying to make a point by using false or misleading statements, it gets problematic and the entire review has a credibility issue.

I found it very interesting to watch this review and compare it to the review of the ST I posted. The worst transmission on the Platinum is all of a sudden a great match on the ST and the guy from the ST-review also knows the difference between a single option and a package by mentioning all three features that are part of it.

The individual in the ST-review also has a well established reputation in reviewing vehicles of all classes (Redline is well known for auto reviews) and if he's applauding Ford for the ST, calling it America's X5, I don't think the Explorer in general is the worst vehicle in US history.

I thought he did a great job, his conclusion was that he would the Explorer - it’s just not up to par with the competitors in a lot of areas so if you do want one, one should know they are paying more for less and an unfinished product...so you have to know what you are signing up for.

Not the Explorer, but looks like they also screwed up the Escape:

I’m seeing a trend here - everything under Hacket will have inferior quality and high prices - perfect combo for a sales disaster
